Thanks to our friend Lynnette Johnson, we were alerted to a new way of requesting recipes at Disneyland! On a recent trip to the Carnation Cafe, Lynnette asked for a recipe and was handed one of these from Chef Oscar himself!
This is the first form we have seen and it is specific to the Carnation Cafe. It does say “Walt Disney Parks & Resorts” so, it leads me to believe that they are available throughout all of Disney’s parks.
From the looks of the form, there seems to be no guarantee that you will get the recipe that you ask for, and they add a disclaimer that the recipes have been converted from large batches to small ones for home kitchen use. So basically if the dish doesn’t come out the exact way it tasted at Disney, that’s your problem, not theirs!
Personally, I liked when Chef Oscar wrote down the recipe by hand and gave it to you on the spot, but I do see how these could come in handy. Have you filled out a Food & Beverage Recipe Request Form yet? If so, I’m wondering what the time frame on a response is? I think I might have to fill one out for myself during my next visit, you know, in the name of journalism!
Thank you to Lynnette for sharing. She’s in the parks on a regular basis, you can follow her fun times on Twitter at @Lynnet_te
